MultiStore for disaster recovery and data migration

MultiStore enables easier migration and mirroring of data because all the information about users, CIFS shares, NFS exports, LUNs, igroups, ACLs, and so on, is encapsulated in the vFiler unit. If a disaster occurs, you can activate this vFiler unit on the destination storage systems with minimum reconfiguration.

You do not have to edit the files’ ACLs, local user group definitions, user mapping information, and so on, before users can access the data.

Note: The static routing information is not carried to the destination storage system.

NFS and iSCSI users experience minimum disruption in service when the vFiler unit on the destination storage system starts serving data instead of the vFiler unit on the source storage system.
